APCO members sent a strong signal last week by sending thousands of emails telling federal officials they disagree with the current classification of 9-1-1 professionals as Office and Administrative Support Occupations. We are now asking APCO members and supporters to submit formal comments explaining how you protect the safety and lives of the general public and emergency responders. Go to APCO’s Take Action page
, where you’ll find a template for submitting comments, guidance on what information to provide and sample comments that may serve as a useful model. The deadline for submitting comments is September 20.
Also, if you’re attending APCO’s conference in Orlando, there will be a session on Sunday, August 14, at 9:30 a.m. in the Cutting Edge Issues & Hot Topics track where you can learn more about the SOC revision
and discuss ideas for the type of information to include in your comments.
